"Ah shit, here we go again."
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition is nothing but a port of the infamous mobile version, with several "enhanced" features that broke the game.
Just scratching the surface.
|This needs some investigation.|
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Look through everything.
Uncompiled Mission Script
In the files for the Switch port, Gameface\Content\OriginalData\GTASA\Scripts contains the uncompiled scripts for story missions, side missions and various other parts of the game. In most cases they also contain notes from developers, possibly from the original developers as well as Grove Street Games.
Found in Gameface\Content\OriginalData\GTASA\Text is notusedtext.txt, which unsurprisingly contains a large amount of unused text from an earlier point in development.
Found in Gameface/Content/OriginalData/GTASA/Text is gxtmaker.exe, an application used to convert .txt files into .gxt text containers for the game.
The Text folder also includes a folder of documents detailing changes made to the american.gxt file during the development of the PC version. The files are dated between January and April (presumably) 2004.
Much like the previous re-releases, certain songs were cut. However, instead of actually removing them completely, these songs are still in the files but prevented from being played in-game by a script.
Shortly after release, the Windows version was made unavailable as Rockstar "remove[d] files unintentionally included" in the game. The game was restored on November 14, 2021 with the uncompiled mission scripts and unused music removed from the files.
